FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- February 7, 2009 -- Nassau Candy of Hicksville, NY is recalling Twenty-Six Peanut Bulk Products because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. This recall action is a result of the PCA expanded recall of January 28, 2009 for all peanut products manufactured in their Blakely, Georgia facility since January 1, 2007.   Nassau Candy received a single shipment of peanuts (blanched and red skinned) from PCA in April 2008 which were used to manufacture the twenty-six bulk products under recall.

Salmonella is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.  In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.  For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov .

These products were distributed nationwide to both retail and wholesale customers.    

These products were packaged either in white or brown corrugated boxes in an assortment of weights ranging from 5-25 lbs.  These products all have the “manufactured by nassau candy’ terminology printed on the label and contain a Nassau Candy manufacturing code. See chart below with specific, weights, item # and code information.
